Secondly, our nutritional approach uses a method that has been shown to be much more user friendly than counting calories (calories on food packaging can be out by up to 25%!) and doesn’t rely on weighing every morsel of food that passes your lips. Our nutritional approach is about achieving optimal health while gradually increasing the quantity of food you are allowed while supporting muscle growth and fat loss. This is important as the industry ‘standard’ approach is to restrict/decrease food as time goes on which leads to muscle breakdown and a lower metabolism – both of which are disastrous as far as fat loss is concerned.
I was fed up with being tired, living an unhealthy lifestyle and struggling to deal with the everyday stresses that life brings us. Then I found Monica, a qualified nutritionist and lifestyle guru, who helped me change my whole way of thinking about my lifestyle. Monica encouraged and supported me throughout my journey, in fact she walked the journey with me. Her insight into my condition was simply amazing. Her knowledge and understanding of the direction I needed to take was exceptional. In five months I feel so much better, I have got my zest for life back and I have the added bonus of losing an amazing amount of weight in a healthy way, all of which wouldn’t have been possible without Monica’s support and help. Monica is simply superb and would I recommend her to someone else – absolutely in a heartbeat.
Want to improve your self-esteem? Plastic surgery is a great way to reduce any excess skin and fat left behind after major weight loss. Its goal is to restore more perfect proportions. If you have experienced dramatic weight loss from bariatric surgery or diet and exercise, you’ll be able to get rid of loose skin so you can fit into your clothes better, in addition to getting rid of overhanging skin that might be causing painful chafing, rashes, and infections. If you have sagging skin in multiple areas, including the face, neck, breasts, arms, abdomen, back and thighs, then this program of procedures may be just right for you.
As you get closer to your weight loss goal, you’ll move into the Short-term Maintenance phase. During this short stage, you can slowly increase your intake of carbohydrates and calories. You'll introduce servings of starch, dairy, and normally there is an increase in the servings of veggies, fruits, and fat. Protein calories may stay the same or change. Most patients continue weekly visits.
YP - The Real Yellow PagesSM - helps you find the right local businesses to meet your specific needs. Search results are sorted by a combination of factors to give you a set of choices in response to your search criteria. These factors are similar to those you might use to determine which business to select from a local Yellow Pages directory, including proximity to where you are searching, expertise in the specific services or products you need, and comprehensive business information to help evaluate a business's suitability for you. “Preferred” listings, or those with featured website buttons, indicate YP advertisers who directly provide information about their businesses to help consumers make more informed buying decisions. YP advertisers receive higher placement in the default ordering of search results and may appear in sponsored listings on the top, side, or bottom of the search results page.
You cannot spot reduce! Weight loss results from an energy deficit; burning more calories than you take in. Aerobic exercise will help create this energy deficit. Genetics and gender play a role in where we store excess fat and where it comes off first. Abdominal exercises will tighten and tone the abdominals but will not directly affect the layer of abdominal adipose.
The ReShape Duo, developed by California-based Reshape Medical, is the world’s only dual intra-gastric balloon. The dual balloon has 3 potential advantages over traditional single gastric balloons: the shape of the dual balloon fits the natural curvature of the stomach, allowing it to sit in a more comfortable position; the two balloons can hold up to 900ml of saline occupying more space in the stomach,; and as each balloon is filled and sealed independently, in the unlikely chance a balloon should deflate, the other balloon will hold the device in place until it can be removed.

Obesity, by definition, means your body mass index (BMI) is 30 or higher, which usually means you are 20 percent or more over ideal body weight. Morbid obesity is defined as having a BMI of 40 or higher and typically means that you are 100 pounds or more overweight. As the second leading cause of preventable death in the United States, obesity poses a major public health challenge.
Francine Joyce is a French nutritionist who graduated in Dietetics in Paris and is now on the French Embassy’s register in London. She has worked in hospitals in France (in oncology, geriatrics, surgery and endocrinology) and the UK (in intensive care, and gastroenterology at the Bupa Cromwell Hospital London) and for the Prader-Willi Association (for patients suffering from genetic obesity). She has also taken part in research studies in the food industry, in particular for the Danone Group.
Obesity results from interactive influences of biological, physiological, psycho-social, behavioural and environmental factors. With such a multifactorial aetiology, prevention of weight gain, weight loss and weight maintenance is less than straightforward. Whilst the energy equation (calories consumed = calories expended +/- calories stored as body fat or glycogen) holds true, food choice is highly complex. As such, interventions that only address factors at the individual level, and do not take into account the social and environmental influences mentioned above, are unlikely to be successful.

Appetite suppressants, like all drugs, have side effects, so read the fine print and discuss potential side effects with a medical professional before taking them. Stimulant-type drugs can cause insomnia, increased blood pressure, increased heart rate, drug dependence and abuse, and withdrawal symptoms. Drugs that work to prevent fat absorption can cause gas, soft stools, and oily spotting. Diet pills that affect neurotransmitters are associated with headache, nausea and vomiting, constipation, dry mouth, and dizziness.
I have been helping clients to loose weight for over ten years now. My success has lead to employment in the film industry across dozens of films and I have also been employed to optimise the body composition of athletes to help improve their athletic performance. The majority of my work however, is with average, everyday people in my clinics in and around London.
